country. the government claims rebel groups use the weapons in an attempt that reportedly killed more than two dozen people. the rebels deny it. they claim it was, in fact, the regime that launched the attack. but after more than two years of each side leveling accusations of murder and torture and increasingly desperate employees for support for world powers. it's impossible to know who to believe. the regime claims the chemical attack happened outside of aleppo. syrian state media showed this video and reports it shows so. wounded. the people here do not bear any signs of any chemical warfare. no visible blisters or convulsions, discolored scand so forth. today the white house cast doubt on that government claim. the white house issued a stern warning nevertheless. >> the issue of the possibility of chemical weapons remains a great concern. you heard the president from this podium express his position when he said, quote: the use of chemical weapons is and would be totally unacceptable. and his warning to the syrian regime that, quote: there will be consequences and you will be held acc

bergoglio, and argentina and the various governments there. >> reporter: that's right. observers look at the situation in argentina with cristina kirchner as somebody who could check her power. he's somebody that's against gay marriage somebody that's against extra sepgscontraception, and that goes against cristina kirchner.r.ner.r. when pwhe p opan s wcis wci announced during a congressional meeting with kirchner, they actually paused and they stopped to remember president hugo chavez. they did not stop and remember pope francis. so that just goes to tell you and to speak and honor pope francis. now, obviously president kirchner did come yesterday and met for 20 minutes before having lunch. she said that she got a kiss from pope francis to sort of mend the situation that has happened, that's been going on in argentina for many many years between really the government of argentina and the church. bergoglio has always been somebody who has spoken out against really self-absorbed politicians who some say cristina kirchner is. also, during the meeting, they prese

they discussed, but there are lots of things on the plate of the new pope who has to deal with governance within the vatican, its finances, all the challenges facing the church. it was a historic first. it's never been seen before that two popes both dressed in white, prayed together, ate together and spent quality time together. >> oh my goodness, so what maybe next for pope benedict? or not pope benedict, for pope francis. >> reporter: the pope emeritus, looking at the pictures, he looks quite frail. he said he wants to be hidden from the world. we understand that some time within the next month, he'll be moving to a converted monastery on the grounds of the vatican, but he's a studious man. he's not interested in having an active public life. he's made that quite clear. so our understanding is it will be sort of a life of contemplation, study and writing in the back gardens of the vatican. not a bad place to spend your retirement. >> not bad at all. ben wedeman, thanks so much from rome. >>> earlier today the u.s. senate passed its version of the federal budget. it's mostly symbolic since it
be a mushroom cloud. and that's not true. there was relationship between the iraqi government and the people who attacked us on 9/11. and yet, there's the republican presidential nominee, the last one to run, saying actually the iraq war was a war of liberation. at the republican convention this year, when they picked that nominee, the speech was given by the national security adviser during the iraq war, the one who said the smoking gun would be a mushroom cloud, who described that war in her speech that night at the convention as a hard hard decision to keep us from being attacked again. ten years later it is hard to come to terms with the fact we went to war based on something the president told us that was not true. there is nothing that can bring back the more than 4400 american troops who died in that war, the more than 30,000 american troops wounded will not be made whole. we cannot bring them back. we cannot heal their injuries retroactively. and george bush and dick cheney and condoleezza rice are still around. in terms of how we get right with this as a country, the accountability can'
shouldn't have a say in things. democracy is an invalid form of government. the friend and fellow catholic of newman said to gladstone, the prime minister, who said, the pope is just a tact. every form of government, and he said don't worry, catholics don't pay attention to the pope when he talks politics. well, more and more, we're not paying attention, not only on contraceptives which is abandoned by catholics for decades now, but even on things like literal body railism about the body and -- literalism about the body and blood of jesus. the most hold under cattics under 30 done in the 1990s showed that 40% of them already didn't believe that it was the literal body and blood of jesus, catholics under 30, and we don't act that way anymore. there's an old saying, the way you pray is the way you believe. you act out your faith. well, when i was an altar boy, if you dropped a hogs, that was gone, and all had to gather around and doing in intowt it. if you spilled wine, you had to wipe it up and burn all of that. now, you know, to avoid having that problem, you are given a little thin host s
of a governing authority. that could all be done by any pope. >> the center of gravity changing, look at the mere fact of a pope from the americas and how many catholics are from latin america, some 40% of over a billion catholics in the world, anna, are latinos. and this is such a significant moment. when the church changes. >> huge, david. really, i can't talk about what it means for hispanics. there's a lot of rivalries between latin american countries. i can tell you we are all so thrilled at having a latin pope, we don't even mind he's argentinian. just wonderful to have a pope that is going to be able to relate to the americas that lived in political strife, that lived under the repression, that has seen what is going on in argentina, the poverty, the economic crisis, that can not only speak our language but can get our ladnguage, is one of us. i think you'll see him active on issues like immigration. you're going to see that the archbishops will be more active in that even though they have been active already. and like chris, i do hope to see more participation by women in the church. i wo

that was filled with explosives in his room. bill: washington getting ready for a possible government shutdown about a week from now? will that happen? the obama administration warning lawmakers it might have to cancel the annual easter egg roll on the first of april. that event happens every year. expected to draw ten of thousands to the white house set for april 1st, just a few days after the could run out of money. white house is saying finally by using these tickets guests are acknowledging this is subject to cancellation due to funding uncertainty surrounding the executive office of the president and other federal agencies. if canceled the event will not be scheduled. we'll notify you if there are any modifications of the event. that bass part of the fine print given to members of congress when the invites went out. invites to bob beckel, former campaign manager co-host of "the five." brad blakeman, deputy campaign manager of president george w. bush. good morning to you. who wants to be peter cottontail here? brad, do you want to raise for your hand for that or is that better suted for b

. there is no precedent for something off that ticket and thrust into governing responsibility. the balance he has to strike is doing his demanding day job and maintaining his options in the event he wants to run for president and a difficult balance to strike. >> you know him well. do you sense he aspires to more nationally? did he get a taste for president politics the last time around? >> i don't want to speak for him but i think he continues to have a taste and ambition to have a big impact on some of these issues he cares about nationally. he's a number of ways he can do it punish. mark leibovich wrote that article. paul ryan can't lose. meaning he could run for president if he stays in congress, he'll be chairman of ways and means committee and some talk about him playing a more prominent role in leadership so he has to decide where he can make his mark. no one i believe has done more to advance the conservative policy agenda in terms of where he has moved through republican congress the last for a years. >> mark, he's a young man, in his early 40s. he has a lot of politics ahead of him. wha
, the hard work of actually governing this church begins. it's the transition from style to substance. that's going to be the story going forward. >> hmm, interesting. all right, let's talk about going forward a little bit as we enter what is the most holy kind of year in the catholic church, the season of easter. outside of the pomp and circumstance, as we head into this time, what happens with what the pope does next? >> well, obviously the preparations now for holy week, he's learning to do what he's been doing as a priest for many years. he was or tained a priest in 1969, so celebrating mass for holy week is not new to him. celebrating it as pope is huge. i'm sure there's a lot of last-minute preparations as all of his assistants who coordinate those things are trying to learn his preferences. and we're seeing a lot of those kinds of things. we talked earlier about the fact that his -- his worth has been rather general and painting with broad brush strokes. so we're right now reading symbols. we're looking at his vesture and the things he's choosing to do. >> what that could mean. >> ho
would scoop as much as 10% from everyone's bank account. >> so of course it's got the government worried about the banks. the banks will be closed in cypress for the next couple days. we're going to go live to europe and why it's rattling the markets in the united states as well. >> all over the world. meanwhile world leaders continue to arrive for the inauguration of pope francis. there's zimbabwe's long ruler made his way to rome. >> and vice president joe biden is leading the delegation for the united states. he's joining a long list of leaders and dignitaries who will witness the official installation of the former cardinal from argentina. francis is the first latin american to head the catholic church. >>> inmates back in custody but not until they had broken out of jail in quebec in rather unusual fashion. >> one witness describes it kind of as a james bond moment. you have these inmates hoisted onto a hijacked helicopter, flew away and then this is all happening in broad daylight. >> amazing scene. paula newton is in ottawa. it does sound like something out of a movie. this has ha
government. and is somewhat weakened after a tough re-election fight. so from the white house perspective, he comes, the president comes here at a pretty good time to try to reach out to the israeli people. try to let them believe that he really does care about israel. that he has their back. they've been very much supported by the united states militarily. the iron dome missile defense system. but for some reason israeli people, perhaps because of the president's 2009 speech in cairo. there is a feeling in israel that he has not shown them the love. so he's going to try to do that on this trip. he's going to go to the historic founder of israel, the hertzel monument. to show that he doesn't believe that israel's roots began only after the holocaust. and that he agrees with israel's timeline that it goes back to millennium. he's going to see the dead sea skrols. he'll pay homage to israel's deep rots and go to the west bank, go to ramallah and speak with the leader of the palestinians, try to get more of a warmer relationship. then they're talking about iran. and iran is front and center. he
authorities could appeal to the u.s. government for her extradition. if the acquittal is upheld, it's case over. a native of the ivory coast who was raised is serving a 16-year prison term for kercher's murder. >> ben wedeman joins us live from rome. curious what the prosecution's argument is for wanting to do this, to retry her. >> well, the prosecution objected to the whole verdict of the appellate court in 2011. their argument is they found dna evidence from amanda knox on the alleged murder weapon, a kitchen knife. however, the defense argued that there was no dna from either amanda knox or raffaele, her former boyfriend, in the room where meredith's body was found. at this point we understand the defense is continuing to present their case inside the italian supreme court behind me. but we're also hearing from some lawyers that this hearing is taking much longer than was expected. some are suggesting we may not hear whether the court will uphold the acquittal until possibly tomorrow. >> ben, what about amanda knox? we know she's not in italy during the hearing. but have we heard anyth
're right now just representatives, pretty soon the government will be formed. people will have positions so i think what you are going to see is more and more u.s. assistance to directly get rid of the assad regime and i think the additional line is that we're going to go really hard back at moscow. because moscow's assistance has been pivotal in keeping assad in office. >> how do we go hard back at moscow? >> first of all, go at them diplomatically. their interests where the united states and russia have certain parallel interests and work those interests. the russians believe in liage. everything with the russians is about linkage. what does putin get from continuing to support assad? one thing he might get a higher oil prices because there's a risk premium on oil. this is important for russia. >> absolutely. >> you know, the united states is going to be a big factor in russia's future because we increase the oil production and the predictions are predicting more than russia or saudi arabia in five or six years. that's a mortal threat to russia if it affects the price of oil. >> all right
and democratic state if things don't change. and he urged young israelis to pressure their government because he said politicians do not take risks unless there is public pressure for change. that was his key message. >> one thing that struck a lot of folks, the president's different stance and tone in regards to this trip. let's listen to remarks that president obama made in cairo in 2009 compared to remark he is gave in ramallah on thursday. take a look. >> this construction violates previous agreements and undermines efforts to achieve peace. it is time for these settlements to stop. how do we get a sovereignty for the palestinian people and assure security for the israeli people? that's not to say settlements are not important t is to say that if we some those two problems, the settlement problem will be solved. >> bill schneider that is a significant reversal what is behind that? >> he wants to get the peace talks started, the palestinians have essentially echoed the american position, which is they won't go to the table unless the settlement -- another moratorium on settlements, in which c
